Geraldine Jimenez was named director of investment strategy and risk at the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS).

Investment strategy and risk is a new unit in the investment branch of the $233.9 billion California State Teachers' Retirement System, West Sacramento.

Ms. Jimenez will lead the unit, which implements and monitors the pension fund's overall portfolio strategy and risk profile. She will report to Scott Chan, CalSTRS' deputy chief investment officer.

Prior to her new director position, Jimenez was the portfolio manager leading the CalSTRS Investment Engagement Unit.

In this capacity, she responded to stakeholder priorities and worked with the Teachers' Retirement Board, senior investment team and executive staff to research investment information on external issues such as legislation or environmental, social and governance issues.
